A good shore dive in Gloucester. Plenty of critters to see with abundant sea life. The entry and exit can tricky with lots a of large rocks to pick your way through at low tide. Parking is a not horrible for NE.

nice site. entry a bit tricky, be careful what/how you carry. high tide recommended. dive wall to left or kelp covered rocks to right. also lobsters abound to right. one big one likes to hide under a big rock.

you can also nav without compass in sandy region. ripples in sand are clear and perpendicular to shore.

This is a great location for a shore dive. The parking is limited here, so be aware. It is also best to enter during high tide.
